Europe seems to be exploding with new video game music events. As we reported last week with the debut of the Game Music Festival in Poland later this year, now Finland will be getting it’s own event to pay tribute to the music of video games across the decades.

The Helsinki Game Music Festival is the first video game music festival to be organized in Finland and will be taking place on May 5th in the Helsinki Hall of Culture. The event will see the performance by the Game Music Collective, the first professional game music orchestra in Finland, as well as several other guest performers including Dutch pianist Ramon van Engelenhoven and Japanese acoustic band Meine Meinung.

“Game Music Collective’s wildly popular debut concert at Finlandia Hall showed that game music is a significant part of our popular culture. The game music audience needs their own orchestra and festival. Game Music Collective will also perform in Tampere Hallon May 26th and in Turku’s Logomo on May 29th.” – Lukas Stasevskij, Game Music Collective Founder

The event will feature musical tribute to more modern games such as Civilization IV, The Witcher 3, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch, as well as honoring the music of older games and franchises of the Gameboy, NES, SNES and Commodore 64 generation.

Tickets are currently on sale for the Helsinki Game Music Festival on the event’s website, where you can also get the full lineup of performing artists and game music tributes.
